The couple are said to have become parents to a daughter

Channing Tatum is believed to be celebrating after becoming a father last week.

The actor, 33, and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed a little girl at a private London hospital on Thursday, according to Us Weekly.

The American couple are currently living in the UK while Channing shoots his new movie Jupiter Rising here.

Channing met pretty brunette Jenna, 32, on the set of romantic 2006 dance flick Step Up and the couple married in 2009.

They announced that they were expecting a baby in December 2012.

Although neither have yet confirmed their new arrival, Channing‘s White House Down co-star Jamie Foxx sent his congratulations on Twitter yesterday.

‘Big luv 2 my @WHD costar @channingtatum + wife @jennaldewan + their new baby. Welcome 2 the world little Tatum,’ Tweeted Jamie, 45.
